Configuring SSL (Optional)

You can implement security between the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server and the Jabber server by using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL provides secure transmission of data across the network through the use of public/private key encryption.


For information on configuring SSL on the Web Conferencing server, see How to Configure Secure Sockets Layer.


After SSL has been configured on the Web Conferencing server, and a certificate has been procured or generated, do the following tasks to set up secure communication on the Jabber server:

  1. Copy the certificate files from the Web Conferencing server to the Jabber server. There are two certificate files-one for Hostname [Home Page] and one for Hostname [Web Conferencing]. The certificate file names end in .cer.
  2. Add the certificates to the keystore on the Jabber server. Do the To Enter the Web Conferencing Server Certificate Files in the Jabber Server Keystore.

You will need to know the full path to the keystore file to configure the Jabber security settings in the next procedure.
  3. When prompted, enter a password for the keystore.
  4. At the command line, enter: keytool -import -alias "CiscoMeetingPlaceWebConferencing" -file <Certificate File for Hostname [Web Conferencing]> -keystore <Keystore Location> and press Enter.
